Hydration boost: watermelon-lime-coconut refresher

Watermelon Lime Coconut Refresher

Every single year, right around this time, people start saying this one thing that drives me insane: “oh.. you know, so… Summer’s coming to end.”

I simply refuse to acknowledge that we’re almost midway through August. This is why today I’m sharing a super simple, delicious and very summery recipe for a Watermelon-Lime-Coconut Refresher.

Watermelon Lime Coconut Drink Recipe

The temperatures are still high, but it’s not like you need an excuse to enjoy this coconut water-based drink that’s great for your skin, facilitates digestion and boosts hydration and energy. I personally am not a huge fan of the taste of plain coconut water so I always find different ways to “dress it up” a little.

Usually, I either add lots of freshly squeezed lime to it or have it in my breakfast smoothies. Mixing it with fresh, chilled watermelon and lots of fresh mint and lime is another great way to enjoy it. If you also tend to work out a lot, put down that sport’s drink and grab some coconut water that’s naturally rich in electrolytes.

3 limes, juiced
a bunch of fresh mint
5 cups of coconut water
4 cups of chilled, fresh watermelon
1 cup of ice

Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. If you like the frothy texture, you can enjoy it as-is, otherwise, strain it through a sieve. Garnish with fresh mint, serve chilled or over ice with few lime wedges and Summer on! This makes about 4 servings.

    This drink looks absolutely delicious! And I have to say summer is my favorite and I cringe when people start posting fall outfits in July! Let me enjoy everyyyyyy last moment of summer, okay?!! It’s always over too soon so no need to rush it by pretending it’s over before it is!

    Yum yum! I always do this with watermelon, but I’ve never thought of adding lime or coconut. Sounds delicious!
